Cooper was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to Phoenix with his family.  The Alice Cooper band formed while they were all in high school in Phoenix, and was discovered and signed in 1969 by Frank Zappa in Los Angeles.  Their third break-through album Love It to Death which hit the charts in 1971, followed by Killer, School’s Out, Billion Dollar Babies and Muscle of Love.  Each new album release was accompanied by a bigger and more elaborate touring stage show.  1974 saw the release of a Greatest Hits album, and then Cooper, in 1975, released his first solo album, Welcome to My Nightmare in 1975, accompanied by the legendary groundbreaking theatrical Welcome to My Nightmare concert tour.

Associated with that album and tour was the ground-breaking network TV special Alice Cooper: The Nightmare.  Other film and television appearances include The Muppet Show, Mae West’s last film Sextette, Roadie, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearst Club Band and appearances on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson and Tom Snyder’s Tomorrow Show.

Alice’s solo career skyrocketed in the late 1970’s, with a succession of hit singles, including “You & Me,” and classic albums, including Lace And Whiskey and From The Inside, and bigger and even more elaborate concert tours.

In the ‘80’s Cooper explored different sounds, highlighted by the new wavish album Flush The Fashion, the Heavy Metal “Constrictor” and “Raise Your Fist And Yell,” and then 1989’s melodic Hard Rock album Trash, which featured the massive hit single “Poison” and became his biggest selling album and single worldwide.  During this period Alice also appeared in the horror films Monster Dog and John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness, and recorded songs for the soundtracks to Roadie, Class of 1984, Friday the 13 Part VI:  Jason Lives and Wes Craven’s Shocker.

Cooper’s most memorable movie appearance was as himself in Wayne’s World in 1991.  He also played Freddy Krueger’s wicked step-father in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, and appeared on Gene Wilder’s TV series Something Wilder as well as on That ‘70’s Show.  The 90’s also saw the release of the albums Hey Stoopid, The Last Temptation and Fistful of Alice.

In the new millenium, Cooper has been very productive and busy, writing, recording and releasing the albums Brutal Planet, Dragon Town, The Eyes of Alice Cooper, Dirty Diamonds, Along Came a Spider, and 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare, plus Old School 1964-1974, a box set celebrating the original band.

He also wrote and published a memoir, Golf Monster, in 2007, which tracked his life from childhood to Rock stardom, and his journey from alcoholic to golf addict.  With his influence on Rock & Roll long since acknowledged, there is little that Alice Cooper hasn’t achieved in his remarkable career, including platinum albums, sold-out tours and any number of honors and career achievement awards.
